getting equal pay or moving ahead is so few women take on science, technology, education and math. i went to school as an engineer in the 80s and was the only woman in the program. ten years later i still don't find any women who become save the engineers the way i did. is there a way to push the younger generation to take those harder courses and break those barriers? >> there is some work to do that and the educational system is stepping up to do that but then you come up against the situation they discovered at yale, that even though women have the same qualifications they are not treated equally. >> we have to encourage women. that is one area in technology and science where women have not made has significant a role as they have in law and medicine and it starts early. it starts in kindergarten where you have to encourage that. i saw the same study but be that as it may women make a lot more money -- [talking over each other] >> in the liberal arts. >> something you want to say? we have time for one more question. >> no, go ahead. the other people talk. >> sandra fluke went to orgasm
